RWANDA INVITES MACRON TO ATTEND 25TH ANNIVERSARY OF GENOCIDE
Written by thereachfm on March 13, 2019
Rwanda, which has accused France of complicity in the 1994 genocide that killed some 800,000 of its citizens, said Tuesday it had invited President Emmanuel Macron to attend the 25th anniversary of the massacre on April 7.
Kigali has long insisted that France supported the Hutu regime and helped train the soldiers and militiamen who carried out the killing of minority ethnic Tutsis and moderate Hutus.
However, President Macron, who is on a swing through Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya, has not indicated whether he will attend the event in the Rwandan capital.
